The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Charging in plug but not charging


Here are some of the possible sources of the problem and suggested troubleshooting methods. AC Adapter Problems
If the AC adapter is not working properly, then the charging won't occur at all. An AC adapter, with lower than required voltage settings, will not be able to charge the battery. See to it that the AC adapter matches the laptop battery's requisite settings. A loose wire or internal breakdown, may render an AC adapter useless. Changing the adapter all together might solve your problem.
Power Management Software Problem
Sometimes, the problem is merely with the power management software. This is the classic case, when the laptop charges when switched off, but doesn't when the computer has booted. The software may have gotten corrupted which must be causing the problem. In such a case, go to the device manager section and uninstall the power management software. In case of Windows XP, uninstall 'Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing' from the device manger section. Take care that you do not install any other AC adapter driver software. Then go for a 'hardware scan', which will automatically identify the battery and reinstall the latest version of the drivers again. That will restore the charging facility of your laptop.
Internal Charging Circuitry Problem
If neither the AC adapter, nor the power management software has a problem, then problem can be with the internal charging circuitry of the laptop. In this case, there is little you can do, other than send the laptop to the manufacturer's service center.
Bad Battery
If you have checked for all of the above, one of the main reasons, which could lead to the problem of laptop plugged in but laptop battery not charging is a bad or dead battery. Run a laptop battery test. If your laptop is quite old, this could be one of the most likely reasons. Get the battery checked from the manufacturer and check if it has exceeded its predicted recharge cycle limit. It is important that you get the dead battery replaced immediately with a new one. Laptop battery troubleshooting will solve the problem.
Hope this article solves your problem of laptop plugged in but not charging. If you are unable to figure out the problem and none of the above troubleshooting methods work, it is best to send your laptop over for servicing with manufacturing company's service center. If you open up the laptop on your own, the warranty stands void, which means you have to spend out of your own pocket. So, unless, it is a software level problem, it is best that you let professionals solve the problem for you.

Lenovo R61 Dead


The power supply in most computers has a fuse, either internal or external, that can blow without you noticing. Basically, you've been on battery operation this whole time, and the battery's finally gone dead.
It will be necessary to open the case and examine the power supply section. It may be possible to replace the fuse yourself, but any operation of this nature that involves opening the case will void any warranty you may have.

Internal battery dead,how to replace


The GPS 12 has an internal battery soldered to the board inside the unit.
I have replaced about a dozen of these over the years,
The problem is caused when the unit is stored for a long time without batteries.
The internal battery is not a rechargable.
You have to use a screwdriver in the crack that joins the 2 parts of the case and break the seal to split the case open.
This will of corse render the waterproofness of the unit void.
You then have to unsolder the internal battery from the board and find a replacement.
It is a tagged lithum battery, I can't remember the model at the moment.
Inside you will also notice the surface mount Intel 386 Chip. which is the main processer.
This has nothing to do with the battery but I found it interesting that a chip in a computer from the mid 80s worth over $3000 then, still has a use.

When you have soldered the new battery into place you need to either glue or tape the unit back together. Be careful not to damage the other parts around the battery.


Always keep charged batteries in the unit when not in use.

Hope this helps.

I have a sony vio vgn-c140g and it wont turn on


You say your battery doesn't work? Try removing it and then plugging it in with your AC Adapter. If it boots now it's because of the dead battery. If it doesn't check whether it boots with just the battery installed. It's either your adapter or your battery.

If it boots without battery, but with adapter --> dead battery.
If it boots without adapter but with battery --> broken adapter. (this can have multiple reasons, loose internal contacts, insufficient power, short circuit)

If none of the above is the case then you should contact Sony for there might be a problem with it's internal power system.
If one of the above is the case however check your warranty and get either the defective part replaced. (or if possible check with someone else's first).

I hope this helps, please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

DS will not keep settings


the main battery is the only battery that keeps the DS memory there is no internal clock battery or anything so it will most likley be your main battery that is dead.

Quick point though, if this is the case your DS should not boot. if it does boot and the settings are lost then I would check the battery terminals to make sure they are connecting okay.

Other than this it could be an eprom on the main board at fault maybe.

Good luck

Dropped; now dead


You will have to open up the PDA case and take out internal battery (round one). It might just need to be replace or resitted. Next time, backup your data to a memory card.
